Stefan already explained that UTF-8 support in Emacs 21.2 does not
include CJK characters.  (IIRC, there's an entry in etc/PROBLEMS about
that.)  However, your original complaint seemed to indicate that CJK
support doesn't work in general, not only in UTF-8 encoded files,
which is a much graver problem if it were true.
